Yet another secret battle star is hidden on the Fortnite Battle Royale map for week 3 of season 4, which will give you a massive boost in ranking up.

With each a new season comes a whole new fresh rank system to grind your way through again, all the way to tier 100.

The fastest way is to make sure you complete all the challenges which release each week, which will reward you with bonus XP, flying you up the levels.

Crucially, you will want to focus on one set of challenges in particular, as fans realized back in week 1, that completing them will reveal a hidden battle star on the map.

The new blockbuster challenges, which are unique to season 4, task you with complete a certain number of challenges in a week, and for week 3, you need to complete all seven.

  • Watch a match replay – 0/1
  • Deal damage with pistols to opponents – 0/500
  • Search chests in Lonely Lodge – 0/7
  • Search Rubber Duckies – 0/10
  • Follow the Treasure Map found in Salty Springs – 0/1 (HARD)
  • Sniper Rifle Eliminations – 0/2 (HARD)
  • Eliminate opponents in Tilted Towers – 0/3 (HARD)

Once you have completed all the challenges for week 3, you will unlock this new loading screen, which displays where the star is.

Some fans will know that this new loading screen was unavailable until todays patch, but has now been released.

*UPDATE: Data miners TwoEpicBuddies have actually discovered two loading screens – and the other also shows a battle star. It is possible that one of these stars is for week 4, while the other is week 3.

So, for week 3, you will need to head over to the small hill just beside Fatal Fields, where you will find yourself the battle star.

And here you can see the star in game, courtesy of Reddit user Agonyy95:

This below loading screen was also found in the game files, and shows another battle star location.

The location of the battle star is shown clearly here.

Remember though, this will only appear once you have completed all of the week 3 challenges for season 4.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
